Carry the Right Way
This is the minimum course required by the state to obtain a Texas License to Carry (“LTC”). If your goal is to earn your LTC, you’re in the right place. We’ll teach you the baseline fundamentals required to carry a concealed handgun legally, responsibly, and safely. After successfully completing the course, we’ll issue a Certificate of Training form (LTC 100) that you can submit to the State to prove you have met the training requirement.
How long is the course?
Four to Six hours (Mandated by state law)
How much does your LTC course cost?
$100.00. Course price includes applicable range fees at the Bandera Gun Club, but not necessarily other venues.
What equipment will I need?
For the LTC course, you’ll need a reliable handgun (revolver or semi-automatic) and at least 50 rounds of ammunition. You’ll also need eye protection and ear protection. If you don’t have your own gun, ammo, or protective gear, TDR Training can provide loaner equipment for you.
Where can I find more information on the LTC application process?
The Texas Department of Public Safety has posted detailed information on its website regarding the LTC application process. From there, you can complete your application online, familiarize yourself with relevant statutes, and browse through frequently-asked questions. If you have any trouble finding information, please feel free to contact us, and we’ll be glad to help.
Is this all I need to carry a firearm?
While this class meets the minimum state requirements, we strongly urge you to continue on to more training if you plan to carry a handgun regularly. The LTC course covers just the very basics: relevant laws, general safety considerations, handgun storage options, dispute resolution techniques, and basic handgun operation and marksmanship. However, there is only so much we can cover in six hours. To really become proficient enough for peace of mind and responsible carry, please consider also taking Defensive Handgun 1. And for those who want to push their skills even further, we offer Defensive Handgun 2 as well.
